Dental professionals are often faced with challenging cases like the one shown – cases that
require the dentist and the technician to balance both strength and esthetic demands. This often
requires multiple substructure materials and multiple systems. As a result, it is difficult to fabricate
restorations and create a lifelike smile with a consistent vitality. Now, with e.max the dentist and dental
technician can work in partnership to restore even the most challenging cases using one high strength
conventionally cementable all ceramic system. By writing just one prescription for e.max you can be
confident you will be providing your patients with optimized esthetics and strength. Patients will benefit from a highly esthetic smile.

IPS e.max® Veneer Tooth Preparation
Uniform Facial Preparation
A medium grit, round-ended, diamond bur is used to remove a uniform thickness
of acial ename by joining the depth-cut grooves.
The diamond bur is angled to bevel back the incisal edge.
Correct preparation of the chamfer margins interproximally allows the appropriate bulk of porcelain..
Thin Veneer IPS e.max can be pressed to as thin as 0.3 mm for veneers.
If sufficient space is present, IPS e.max can be placed over the existing teeth without the removal of any tooth structure.
Depending on the case requirements, however, some teeth may need to be prepared to accommodate for the thickness of the ceramic
and to ensure for proper contour and emergence profile.
